They are used all over the world for that purpose. Although there are no studies on the appropriate age for the consumption of fermented foods, considering that they may have very low vestige levels of alcohol (due to fermentation), it is advisable for children from 6 years old. Not containing potential allergens, they can be given from 1 year´s old, but under the decision of the pediatrician or parents.
Yes, there is no evidence advising against that, but they have a lot of live bacteria and, therefore, we must have a balance. If you are taking a probiotics supplement, bare in mind that you should balance fermented foods eat and vice versa.

To enhance the benefits of our products.
We know that Mighty Farmer products are rich in Vitamin K.
Yes, they do. Natural antioxidants are present in the final products.
Yes, they do contain amino acids and proteins.
Probiotics are bacteria naturally present in the human body, especially in the gut. Basically they create communities in gut walls, reproduce themselves and function as a barrier for bad bacteria, toxins and other strange particles that enter the body. They also help produce a lot of substances that help bowel movements, digest fibres, produce short chain fatty acids, help produce hormones, and protect our immune system. Therefore, they are indeed very healthy for us.
Probiotics are live bacteria and prebiotics are fibres or dead bacteria that serve as food for probiotics.
Probiotics are colonies of bacteria that live all over the gut walls and protect them from toxins and other bad bacteria. They contribute to the digestion of fibre, help bowel movements and produce a lot of much needed hormones.
The gut is considered a second brain because we produce lots of hormones, including serotonin and melatonin (the hormones of happiness and sleepiness) in the gut. It is the organ that decides what is absorbed to the blood and what it depletes from the body. Basically it can control a lot of physiological processes that are fundamental for our energy, immune function, humour, weight management, sleep and so on.
The gut is considered a second brain because we produce lots of hormones, including serotonin and melatonin (the hormones of happiness and sleepiness) in the gut. Furthermore gut bacteria produces a lot of short chain fatty acids, that play an important role in synaptic transmission, memory and concentration.
Yes, there are countless studies on the subject, including books for the general public that talk about it. One of my favourites is "Gut : the inside story of our body's most under-rated organ", by Giulia Enders.
Because it is the second most emotional organ in the body. It has a nervous system of its own, which affects bowel movements, gas production and water retention according to the feelings that we have. That is also the reason why there is a disease called Irritable bowel syndrome.
Sauerkraut, Kimchi, Fermented Veggies, Kefir, kombucha, miso, pickles, yoghurt and other fermented foods.
Yes, they are a natural source of gut bacteria, which helps with bowel movements and production of digestive substances.
Gut bacteria helps maintain gut cell integrity and improves all the digestive processes. Therefore, it helps absorb less toxins and fat, which is important for maintaining a healthy weight. Besides, it helps controlling our satiety hormone production, which contributes to less compulsive and emotional eating episodes.
Yes, skin is very influenced by gut health. The gut bacteria provided by fermented foods helps the gut absorb less toxins and have a stronger reaction to bad bacteria, protecting our immune system and avoiding skin reactions like rashes, allergies and spots.
We can say that they help the body absorb less toxins and retain less water. So, in a sense, we can consider them diuretics. But, they don't deplete minerals like diuretics usually do. Besides, they are a good source of water which is important to keep the body hydrated and the kidneys well functioning.
Yes, gut bacteria protects the body from toxins and bad bacteria that causes inflammation and slows down our metabolism.
Absolutely! About 70% of our immune system cells are concentrated around the gut walls and their only protection is, in fact, gut bacteria. We can imagine them as little soldiers protecting our china wall :)
Yes. The gut has billions of probiotic bacteria living in it. If they are a strong community, bowel movements are great and you can poop at least once a day. But, if we have uninvited neighbours, taking homes from our probiotics, bowel movements turn out irregular. They can be super slow or, on the contrary, react really fast to foods, cause you cramps, gases and dilated stomach.
Yes, in fact, a large quantity of hormones are produced in the gut, including serotonin and melatonin, the so called hormones of happiness and sleepiness, super important for our mood. But, we need a healthy gut for that, which means, we need a lot of good probiotic bacteria in our life.
Yes, fermented foods are a natural source of iron and vitamin B12 due to the fermentation process which is very important for our energy levels.
They are really healthy foods and, most important, they are considered functional foods, since they have so many benefits for our body.
Usually, you can have immediate and long term results. If you have any discomfort during a digestion, you start eating fermented foods and you will notice a difference right away. In terms of immune system, metabolism, bowel movements, humour, concentration and other effects, it can take you a week or more of daily intake of these fermented foods to feel some results.
Some people may feel a bit more gas production when they eat fermented foods if their gut has few good bacteria in it, but there are no serious side effects if you eat them in recommended doses. Even babies from 1 year old and seniors can eat fermented foods safely.

Our limited time is spent wisely on what matters the most – building extraordinary memories with our loved ones. Memories which we will hold dear for the rest of our lives.
Mighty Farmer provides easy and tasty solutions for your everyday meal. We offer a range of high-quality naturally fermented veggies, rich in vitamins & fibre, and full of living cultures. Our products will transform every meal into a delicious and gut-healthy moment!
Food Waste is one of the major concerns of Mighty Farmer. We fight food waste in three different approaches:
Source - Did you know a vast portion of veggies ends up in the gutter just because they do not have the right size or shape? But that does not mean not having outstanding quality. When the magic of fermentation steps in, the size or shape does not matter. We don't want to see these great cucumbers, carrots, or cabbages end up in the trash. Hence, we work closely with local farmers and give these veggies a second chance.
At Home - Many of our recipes focus on indulging you into using all the food, even leftovers for our recipes.
At our production – Feed people in need with our delicious and healthy veggies that was in excess in the production. We will create Mighty meals to distribute to those people.
